    I agree, popular vote or bust. None of this districting bullshit, but only in battleground states.

    I don't see republicans looking to divide Texas...

    And where exactly is your evidence of Gerrymandering?

    Or - gasp!- maybe more people voted in the presidential election! Maybe some people changed what party they voted for! Maybe the people that voted for Obama don't know enough about politics to realize when their state elections are (probably the case).

    It's what the dem's in California did to get by the 2/3 majority for budget votes. Gerrymandered the districts so they got more seats, were even blatant about it saying it was good for California so the will of the people (to spend and spend, borrow, tax and spend) didn't need to be slowed by any republicans wanting cuts or fiscal discipline. They have a super majority and are already looking to spend away.

    I guess it's good when it's the dems.

    Well first two planes flow into some buildings. That kicked off two wars. The military needed to be rebuilt to fight these wars. Because Billy Clinton cut the military in half. Then after all that the country had a debt of 1.2 trillion. We elected a new president that said he would fix it. But instead he has worked with a deficit of over 1 trillion every year he has been president. He also has not passed a budget in the last 3 years. The country now has a debt of 16.4 trillion.

    Doesn't Nebraska already do this? And don't the dems always get 1 EC vote from the black part of Omaha?

    this is incorrect, when Bush left office we didn't have a debt of $1.2T...we had a national debt of $10.626T

    2001 Bush deficit $420 billion
    2002 Bush deficit $555 billion
    2003 Bush deficit $595 billion
    2004 Bush deficit $554 billion
    2005 Bush deficit $574 billion
    2006 Bush deficit $501 billion
    2007 Bush deficit $1,020 billion
    2008 Bush deficit $1,885 billion
    2009 Obama deficit $1,652 billion
    2010 Obama deficit $1,229 billion
    2011 Obama deficit $1,225 billion
    2012 Obama deficit $1,089 billion
    2013 Obama should have a deficit of $900 billion

    Under Bush's 2 terms of president the federal debt went up $4.899 T
    Under Obama's 1 term the federal debt has gone up $5.874 T

    I'm not sure where you got the $1.2 trillion from but the rest of your post is factual. No budget in 3 years, debt is actually now almost at $16.5 trillion

    You are right I didn't research this. I just remember Obama always saying he inherited 1.2 trillion. I just assumed he was talking about debt.

    well him saying that would have been drastically wrong as well, unless he's trying to blame $1.2 trillion of the $1.652 trillion in 2009 on Bush (which I don't fully agree with but there should be some sharing in that year between the two)

    Obama's done a number on the economy, things are starting to look up in regards to our spending but we are still so far off it's ridiculous...I'd like to see us reach a surplus in the near future but I don't expect that to happen...we will likely be around $20T in debt when he leaves office

    I work in the DoD and we currently have drastic budget cuts, a hiring freeze, we are offering voluntary separation and job cuts currently. I have been told it's going to get worse in the next couple years as well. I was informed my job is safe thankfully but know of a few people who were not retained out of their internships.

    Dude, you seriously need to change your voter registration (or have I missed that?). There's no reason for you to be a registered R.

    Democrats haven't made an effort at changing the electoral college in their battle ground states to ensure that their guaranteed congressional seats also get them a guaranteed president.

    That is bullshit, and everyone here should know it.

    I am R so I can have a say in who represents me because I am tired of crazy teabaggers (their term) who I didn't have a chance to vote for or against.

    I'm pretty sure Jeanine Garafalo came up with that one. And she is one crazy-ass liberal.

    They must be cutting your department to make room for this.

    The Defense Department plans to boost the ranks of cybersecurity professionals, increasing cyber staff at U.S. Cyber Command by more than five times to some 4,900 employees, according to a recent report in The Washington Post.

    The staff-up involves three tiers of cyber pros: Those to protect critical infrastructure, protection forces designed to safeguard DoD's own networks and "combat mission forces," which will provide offensive cyber capabilities.

    But DoD's plan is daunting in more ways than one. The job qualifications and skills needed for the kinds of positions the Pentagon wants are rare and often require years of training and hands-on experience. And even if DoD looks outside the confines of the Pentagon to fill these roles, it's not entirely clear where the new cyber pros would come from.
